University Challenge gets wrong answer

The BBC has apologised after giving the wrong answer to a question on BBC Two quiz show University Challenge.

A team from Cambridge University's Clare College was asked to name the Czech composer of an excerpt of music.

They wrongly guessed Smetana, but host Jeremy Paxman told them the correct answer was Dvorak. Music experts later pointed out the clip was actually a Gregorian plainchant - a form of medieval church music - and not the work of Dvorak.
